Try Nelly Furtado's Party's Just Begun.  I have it on the Brokedown Palace OST.  Pretty nice about 10 seconds in.

Any song suggestions to take these cans to their limit? Don't worry about genre--musical prefeyou are enjoying themrence has nothing to do with this experiment. 

 

 

Glad you are enjoying them...

 

How about trying the song in the OP here....http://www.head-fi.org/t/643934/the-essential-rock-metal-headphone-appreciation-thread-fans-unite then post your thoughts metal man....beerchug.gif

Just made a post in the thread. I highly recommend the songs I just posted for Ultrasones.

Unfortunately I don't have them to compare but the Pro 900s seem to have an even wider sound stage than my old open back HD 518s? Is this even possible? 

post #5285 of 5819
I've had my Pro900's for about a year now and I paired them with the Hifi-Man 602. Let me say that this combo sounds awsome. I know the mids are slightly reccessed but not with this combo. You can listen to everything. The 602 has slightly rolled off highs , with a mid-range that is to die for , deep punchy bass, wide dynamics and a huge detailed soundstage. You have to hear it.

I listen to jazz, some classical, house, Baltimore Club, hip-hop, rap, dubstep, pop, some rock and I am sure I mised some.

Listen to Porter Robinson's Album. Dubstep that is too addicting ;)

 

Also Dusky aka Solarity

 

Skrillex for more dub

 

Massive Attack for some chill awesomeness

 

Matt Lange personally one of my favorite producers.

Agreed. They render bass very well, almost like Shabazz Palaces and The Bug. Amenamy is one of my usual test tracks for new equipment. Love the trap influence too

Thank you  for the suggestions.  I will look up those bands and get back to you

I don't understand the odd claims of the people that are against them.  The claim is the mids are just not there while they prefer flat music.  But any musician knows is that if add bass and significant highs at flat the mids will be easily drowned out because they do not travel as far. I don't understand how so many people miss this point.

Same thing happened to me, I had to send it in for an RMA repair. I think they had to re-solder the connection. Solid performance since the repair.

Yeah, it became a huge ordeal with the person I bought them from.  It was a independent seller.  She said to ship them back to her and then said that there was nothing wrong with them.  So, she gave me the option of returning them to me or returning them for a return with twenty percent of the cost of the item that she would keep for her troubles.  I filed an a-z claim and got it all back since she had no right to do that.  Just another warning of buying from sellers like that.

I got a friend of mine to buy these today, I was actually underwhelmed when I tried them out of an ipod but after some amping they really came alive! I was shocked at the sound stage to be honest, I thought it would be much smaller then it was. Overall I found these to great and the build quality was absolutely fantastic, I even thought they felt more solid then my Edition 8's!

I completely agree. It's night/ day difference when I try them out of my ipod. Well, I have to say they sound "fine", but still, the difference is big.

What kind of amp do you have? I'm looking into an E11 or the new E12 that's coming out in March.
